Georges Berthomier is employed as a laborer in the Paris area, before being interned in a psychiatric hospital in 1948. There, he devotes his time to drawing. Three years later, he is transferred to a different institution and stops drawing and painting for several years before his death. Berthomier represents landscapes peppered with architectural constructions of inventive elevation. So as to develop his motifs more freely, he multiplies the points of view, modifying the direction in which his compositions can be viewed.
